A Tribute to Music Education
- Music Monday celebration -
Students and staff throughout the Greater Essex County District School Board will be sharing their appreciation of music during Music Monday, on Monday, May 7th.
The object of this nation-wide event promoted by the Coalition for Music Education in Canada is for schools to enrich their communities with the musical skills they learn and enhance in school.
The GECDSB will share some songs, including the Music Monday anthem "Sing it Together" through a live stream broadcast Monday from the Capitol Theatre in Windsor beginning at 12:00 p.m. and culminating with the synchronized performance of the new Music Monday theme at 1:00 p.m.
There will be performances from the Tecumseh Vista Elementary Handbell Choir, the Walkerville Centre for the Creative Arts Concert Band and the WCCA Concert Choir.
Between selections students will present personal testimonials about what learning music means to them.
